But What's a Ceilidh?

A Ceilidh (pronounced "Kay-lee") was traditionally an informal social gathering featuring Scottish or Irish folk music and dancing - put simply, a great big party! Holding a ceilidh continues to be a great way to celebrate today. Ceilidh Generation are an increasingly popular choice for weddings, corporate events and parties, providing an excellent way of ensuring that your guests mingle with one another and let their hair down.

Sounds daunting?! No previous experience or skill is required, as the confident, professional caller guides your guests through the steps, before launching straight into the energetic dance accompanied by this lively band.
